STRUGGLING WITH A           BASIC NEED: SELF ESTEEM

Iím struggling to find the road to emotional maturity and make peace with myself.  I seek a sense of my own intrinsic value, self respect, confidence in my ability to see life as a challengeónot a threatóand being able to enjoy it in relaxed fashion.  I want to leave behind whatís inside me too often now: feeling alienated, unworthy, ashamed, that I canít cope, that Iím a failure; too concerned about what others think of me; anxiety, fear, and self doubt. When Iím really down on myself, with this battle raging inside, I lose hope.

SICK, DISABLED, OLDŤ INDEPENDENT LIVING

Perhaps like you, I value self determination, self respect and equal opportunity óbut unlike you I have a handicap. This makes my fully functioning and achieving difficult, if not impossible. Even when I seemingly overcome this condition, Iím conscious it exists. Iím aware that people and /or technology ďcrutchesĒ often help me. Iíd like to depend on these less, and more often function independently. In rising to challenges posed by impairment / pain, Iíve overcome obstacles I once thought insurmountable. I continue to hope!
